What you as an entrepreneur need a credit report for

You would like to know whether a potential customer is as creditworthy as this customer alleges?

Will this customer be able to pay your bills tomorrow, too? For 85% of all insolvencies, the KSV1870 rating indicates an increased risk as early as 12 months in advance. However, poor credit standing does not mean you have to forego the business. In this case, there are measures you can take to protect yourself, such as advance payment or retention of title.

A long-standing business partner has recently been slow to make payments?

Would you be able to confirm a larger shipment at the usual terms and conditions? In a case like this, a KSV1870 credit report also provides clarity. After all, 80% of all uncollectable accounts receivable are related to regular customers!


Your company is participating in a tender?

Often, this requires voluntary disclosure of information. In any case, it makes a good impression on your potential customer, if you can supply evidence of your financial stability based on a credit report provided by KSV1870. Contact our information experts directly to ensure that all relevant information is taken into account. Please complete the KSV1870 Business Datasheet as well and provide us with all the relevant data.

You are awarding a contract and want to know whether the supplier has good credit standing?

Will the supplier be able to handle deliveries completely and accurately? A KSV1870 credit report supplies the necessary clarity and allows you to avoid difficulties as a result of supply bottlenecks.

You would like more information about your competitors?

You are interested in your competitor's key indicators, e.g. revenue, number of employees or export? A KSV1870 credit report supplies you with all the important facts. Ideally position your company on the market by identifying strengths and weaknesses, but also opportunities and risks.

You would like to thoroughly vet a new business partner to ensure you are exercising proper due care?

And you would like to comply with the legal requirements for money laundering checks at the same time? Then make use of the Beneficial OwnerReport. In combination with a KSV1870 credit report, the information it supplies provides the perfect protection against payment default.
